Hi everyone,

I've recorded a tribute to one of my heroes, Alan Parsons. I have always admired his production and writing style and with this track I've tried to capture that same sound. I hope I've done him justice.

The video was shot with three Sony HD cameras and the edit done in Vegas 13.

This is the final track off my new album "Wide Open Spaces".

I hope you enjoy,

Very nice recording and video! Really enjoyed it.

Noticed the Tokai Les Paul. It sounded great! Brought back memories of my good friend who bought a Tokai Strat when I was a dependent in Japan in '82-'83. I remember it was a very nice sounding guitar and heavy. At the time Tokai was making some of the best clones. I was going to buy one before I left Japan but procrastinated too long and left for the Army before I could buy one. *sigh*

Gotta love the "Love Rock" in place of the Les Paul logo! (;

I'm going back to Japan next April and may have to stop by Ochanumizu Music district and see if they have any Tokai guitar clones!

Anyway Great job thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

@Byron, you can't go wrong with the Tokais. They are really great guitars and are all hand made.

Yes, my Love Rocks are very heavy. I like them like that.
